Race Information

Make tracks to the Philadelphia Zoo and run wild at the annual 5k or 1 mile run/walk to help shake off Parkinson's disease. The Philly Rabbit Run is Shake It Off’s largest fundraiser. The event has grown every year attracting over 1,000 participants and has been touted as one of the area’s fastest growing Easter tradition.  Enjoy a unique experience at the nation's oldest zoo before it's open to the public.
